Carhart Cancelled His Appointments Today - Why?

Recall that Operation Rescue discovered this past weekend that Carhart did not obtain the required license for his new hell-hole.  We knew that it would be impossible to obtain that license.  How could the place pass inspection when it was still being renovated?
We can understand how Carhart might have difficulties in getting a license - especially in light of this.  Perhaps he doesn't think it's any big deal whether or not his place has a license, as some of his employees - particularly people who also came from Nebraska - have had their licensing woes, too.

Many of us noised abroad this lack of proper certification for this new mill.  Other area businesses were leafleted, as was the surrounding neighborhood.  The latter received the flyer on the right.  We all suggested that they call the landlords to complain.  Perhaps it was they who forbade Carhart from starting the baby-slaughter, if they were understandably concerned that they might be held liable if they allowed an unlicensed facility to operate on their premises.  Or perhaps Carhart himself had an unusual flicker of common sense, seeing that he was caught "with his hand in the cookie jar", as it were.  Whatever the cause, we rejoice that at least for a few days, babies are given a reprieve and we pray that their mothers never reschedule.

As I mentioned Sunday, two events happened today.  The first was a press conference at 12 noon, attended by over 200 people.  The video appears below.  The second was a prayer vigil at 6:30pm, attended by 25-30 people, myself included.  I will have that video up tomorrow evening.  If you're in this area, please visit www.prayforbethesda.com to join our efforts in ridding our state of this barbaric practice.

Pro-Life Activities On Old Georgetown Road On Tuesday Oct 17

With or without the proper licensure, Leroy Carhart will commence his baby-slaughter operations on Tuesday, October 17th, at his new haunt located in Suite 104 of 10401 Old Georgetown Road.

As before in Germantown, pro-life activists will make known the horror that will transpire at that location as well as offer to abortion-bound women life-saving alternatives.  Two outreaches are planned for this Tuesday, Oct 17
  • Press conference at 12 noon in front of the building on Old Georgetown Road
  • Candlelight prayer vigil at 6:30 pm, same location
Please plan to be there, if at all possible.  Also please contact Aubinoe Management Company to complain about this baby-killing business on their premises: )301) 841-6461 or email ala-ala-inc.com

Carhart's New Bethesda Mill Is Illegal

Operation Rescue has received confirmation from the State of Maryland that Carhart's new abortuary, scheduled to begin baby-murder in four days, is not licensed as Maryland law requires all such facilities to be.  Now what was that pro-abort rhetoric again about "safe, legal and rare"?  Carhart fails miserably on all counts.

Please keep this situation in prayer.  As developments occur, I will announce as appropriate.

Carhart To Resume Baby-Murder In Bethesda MD

We have always known that Leroy Carhart was attempting to resume his late-term baby-murder practice after the Germantown location was sold from underneath him.  Regrettably my home state is too much of an abortionist's bonanza for a late-term baby-murderer to resist.

Pro-life activists have learned that he has indeed leased a new place in Montgomery County, MD.  The location is 10401 Old Georgetown Road, Suite 104, Bethesda MD.  Operation Rescue has more details here.  I'll point out that this location is just one block south of the I-270 interchange so it's quite convenient for those driving from out of state.  Most chillingly it is within walking distance from Walter Johnson High School.  It is a short drive from that location to Suburban Hospital; thus, the ambulances that will pull in front of that building won't have as far to drive as they did from Germantown to Shady Grove Hospital.  However, Carhart has no admitting privileges to that hospital - or any other hospital, for that matter.

Baby-murder is anticipated to begin on October 16th.  Pro-life activists will be there.

Pope Francis Toys With Heresy In His Hostility Towards Capital Punishment

Pope Francis has made known his animosity towards capital punishment, going so far as to condemn it outright.  Of course in doing so, he has directly contradicted centuries of Church teaching.  These teachings include proclamations by various popes and the Council of Trent.  Also read here, here, here, here, and a smattering of my previous posts dealing with this as the Maryland Catholic Conference repeatedly blundered on this topic.

In Evangelium Vitae, Pope St. John Paul II betrayed his personal distaste for capital punishment, but he respected Sacred Tradition enough to acknowledge that it trumped his personal proclivities.  In other words, he understood that as the Successor of Peter, his role was to safeguard and promulgate the Deposit of Faith in its entirety.

Today we heard from several sources that Pope Francis thinks the catechism should be updated to reject the death penalty.  See here and here.

Ponder these considerations:
  • The pope is the guardian of Church teaching, not its judge.  He cannot alter it to his personal liking.
  • The Teaching of the Church is immutable for it stems from God's word, which is as immutable as He is.  To pretend that God's word can change is to insinuate that God is subject to change.  That is impossible.  Such notions strike at the very nature of God Himself - a supreme blasphemy.
  • "Heresy" is defined as by St Thomas Aquinas as being "a species of infidelity in men who, having professed the faith of Christ, corrupt its dogmas".  The morality of capital punishment has been promulgated by the Church for hundreds of years.  It will not change.  The attempt to change it is inherently heretical
If God's teaching can be held to be subject to change in this matter of capital punishment, then all topics of doctrine and morality can be seen as subject to change.  I believe this is the main goal of this latest papal move.  This proposed change to declare capital punishment to be anathema is a trial balloon.  If this "balloon" appears to be flying free, we'll see the heresies ensconced in Amoralis Lamentia being promulgated without nuance or apology within our Churches.

Thus far Pope Francis has opposed capital punishment as a matter of public opinion.  For canon lawyers and moral theologians out there, if the pope does attempt to alter the catechism, will that constitute an act of material and formal heresy that might render his papacy invalid?  I don't know, but it seems to me to be a reasonable question.

Father Michael Rodriguez On Pope Francis, Dubia, Filial Correction And Fatima

We are days away from the centennial anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima's last apparition to the three children.  On that day, the Miracle of the Sun occurred.  Rather than focus on that miracle, we must address the message of Our Lady of Fatima.  By and large, it has been disobeyed and the result has been nothing less than catastrophic.  She asked that the Pope, in union with the bishops, consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart.  Verbal tap-dancing and spin-meistering aside, that has not been done.

I post now a video of a talk given by Father Michael Rodriguez a few days ago.  He speaks on the topics of Fatima, Pope Francis, the Dubia and the Filial Correction.  It is an hour long but worth every minute.  Please watch it in its entirety.  Towards the end he recommends some actions.  To that list I might have added the wearing of the Brown Scapular and First Saturday devotions: (Mass, Confession, Rosary, visit to the Blessed Sacrament.

Pro-Lifers, Support The Filial Correction Now!

Over the years I've come to respect Voice of the Family for offering a comprehensive and truly Catholic perspective it has given to the many moral and spiritual issues facing the world today.  By the way, Voice of the Family is not to be confuse with Voice of the Faithful; the latter is infested with dissidents.  Yesterday Voice of the Family released a post entitled "Why The Pro-Life Movement Should Support The Filial Correction".

I thoroughly concur with their conclusions that the pro-life movement will not succeed unless all Catholic clergy supports it.  At present, not all do.  Long before I started this blogging apostolate, I was (and still am) active in the pro-life movement.  Having been puzzled and yes, angered, by being stiff-armed by Church officials during various pro-life efforts, I realized that the hierarchy was infested by anti-life progressives.  I also knew that the Culture of Life could never be established until the infestation was removed from the Church.  Knowing that "light is the best disinfectant" I began this apostolate with the aim of informing the Catholic in the pews what was happening in our chanceries, at the USCCB, etc so that we would engage in remedial prayer and action.  I am honored to be just one of many such Catholics.

The article quotes Professor Josef Siefert's warnings that the moral ambiguities in Amoralis Lamentia threaten the entire basis of Catholic moral teaching.  Again I agree, but I'll add my hypothesis that this ambiguity is the effect desired by the authors of Amoralis Lamentia.  Actually it is more than an educated guess, for a high-ranking Vatican official was actually quite explicit about the deconstruction of Catholic moral principles.

That happened at a meeting this past week at Boston College.  A bevy of dissident Churchmen and "theologians" met to discuss AL  Also in attendance was papal confidante Fr. Antonio "2+2=5" Spadaro.  LifeSiteNews has reports of some of the bile that oozed from that gabfest.  Spadaro said, "it is no longer possible to judge people on the basis of a norm that stands above all."  There is a lot to unpack in this heretical statement.
  • "No longer possible".  Spadaro admitted (perhaps unwittingly) that such evaluation was the norm for the past 2000 years, and therefore is breaking with Church Tradition
  • If Spadaro allows for mutation of Church teaching, he is actually casting doubt on the very immutability of God Himself.  His Words cannot change for God cannot change.
  • Spadaro's heresy is precisely the subject of Siefert's warning about AL undermining the entirety of Church moral doctrine.
Fellow Catholic pro-lifers, we must come to grips with the quagmire that is Amoralis Lamentia.  If our shepherd desert us and even turn on us in this matter of Church doctrine changing, our efforts to save babies will be horribly undermined.  Please heed John Smeaton's plea for support of the Filial Correction.  I already signed it and urge you to do the same.

I now speak especially to those few who still insist on viewing this papacy through rose-colored glasses.  Wake up!  Acknowledge the facts that are daily slapping us all in the face!  Your denials of the serious problems hinder the corrections that need to occur.  In a word, stop lying to yourselves.  It isn't pleasant to believe that the Chief Shepherd is not helpful, but the situation is what it is.  For the sakes of your own souls, please take off the rose-colored glasses.

President Trump Rolls Back Contraceptive Mandate

Today President Trump essentially gutted the demonic Obamacare contraceptive mandate, restoring to employers the right to follow God's laws instead of the dictates of the culture of death.   From Brietbart we read that "the new rule provides full protection for Americans with religious beliefs and moral convictions and acknowledges that the contraceptive mandate concerns serious issues of moral concern, including those involving human life."

Naturally Planned Parenthood is pitching a hissy-snit while the ACLU (American Commies & Libertines Union) is getting ready to sue the administration.  LifeSiteNews registers the praise of many pro-life leaders, and the teeth-gnashing of pro-aborts, in reaction to this significant step in the right direction.  Besides the now-relieved Little Sisters of the Poor and some legal and lobbying organizations manned by Catholics, we've not yet heard from the official Catholic hierarchy.  As of this writing, there is not one peep on the USCCB site about this matter.  Had Trump withdrawn the US from the UN, you can bet your bottom dollar that they would have been all over it.  So why are they quiet?  Most likely they will put up some obligatory blurb on the matter.

This action by the president is just one more proof that ELECTIONS MATTER!  At the risk of causing some anger, I hope that those who espoused the #nevertrump mantra last November are considering these events and what could have been the horrible alternative.

More To Las Vegas Massacre Than Meets The Eye

As I said in the previous post, the liberal screeching for more "gun-control" is in full swing.  One individual on facebook opined that "no, we don't need a thorough investigation" (his exact words), that we simply needed to restrict/ban guns.  I checked his wall and the meme #Istandwithplannedparenthood is right there.  He's pro-baby-murder, making a sham of any moral credibility that he was trying to claim.

I replied that we do, and others are, too.  There are many strange things about the circumstances surrounding Paddock and the shooting itself.  I won't rehash the points all these articles bring to light.  Here are thoughts of Allen West, former army officer and presidential candidate.  Other questions are stated hereherehere.

I link now to an article by George Neumayr regarding the intellectual vacuity of the "gun-control" argument.  I too think that gun-control is just one step of the progressive goal to strip people of their identities as moral, free Christians and to transform us into docile minions of the "benevolent" nanny-state tyranny.  Other steps include:
  • The weakening of our moral strength by attempts to seduce into sexual licentiousness and perversions
  • The persecution of Christians who don't bend to the gay mafia
  • The attempts to water down pro-life and pro-family efforts with "seamless garbage" tripe
  • The use of "common core" to dumb down our children so that they can't read or reason in linear and logical manners
  • This list is by no means all-inclusive.
They see the Las Vegas massacre as a most opportune excuse to cram through their agenda.  Will we allow them to do so?  We must continue to pray, to speak out, to ask probing questions.

Las Vegas Shootings Bring Out Seamless Garbage

We've all heard the tragic news about the shootings in Las Vegas: 59 dead and hundreds more wounded at an outdoors country music festival in town.  A 64-year old man named Stephen Paddock, himself shot to death, is being touted as having major - if not sole - responsibility for the shootings.  That he had a role in the massacre is beyond question.  However, he is being described as being alone and without motive - a claim that doesn't withstand close scrutiny.

Differing accounts say in his hotel room on the 32nd floor that there were 23 firearms, some of them automatic rifles.  How could one man have possibly had use for all those rifles - unless he wasn't alone?  A man who was staying in a room next to Paddock's saw several people who may have been involved.  The video in that article shows gunfire from a room that is much lower than 32 stories.

I now link to an article that asks some relevant questions - questions that demand answers.  If you haven't heard of "Natural News", surely you've heard of National Review.  A piece therein asks questions too (some the same as the other article).  Consider the financial hassle of procuring just the right hotel room - probably well in advance of the concert.  Consider how it had to be both difficult and expensive to procure all those firearms - and transport them unnoticed to the hotel room(s).  Could one lone older man have done all that himself?  The two articles indicate that Paddock had both Antifa and ISIS ties; indeed, ISIS claimed responsibility for the massacre.

It didn't take long for the left-wing hate to spew forth.  A CBS lawyer and vice president tweeted that the victims deserved their fates because country music fans are often Republican.  I applaud CBS for having the decency to fire her.  Prison Planet's piece contains some enlightening videos to examine along these lines.

Paul Watson's video highlights some all-too-predictable progressive shrieks calling for more abridgment of our rights to defend ourselves (as though Paddock et al weren't already breaking or circumventing gun control laws already).  Just wait for some similar yap and yammer to be found in Crud or Amerika magazines, not to mention some pathetic press releases from the USCCB.  I'm also anticipating that some other progressives will somehow blame this massacre on "climate change".

As we pray for the victims and their families, let us resolve to bring our nation and world back to God.  Let us resolve to end abortion and all other sins against marriage, family and life.  Only then do we have a chance for piece.
